No they're not.

This is the breakaway Arch-based no systemd distro that uses openrc init instead.

One of the key developers is this guy artoo who's been on manjaro forum for quite some time and made the manjaro openrc variant before it moved to join artix as well.

Arch Linux, artoo, artix.

Have you tested it?

Because I installed the LXQT Release Candidate in Virtualbox and I can tell you they do have a graphical installer.

Arch Linux is NOT the same as their derivatives like Manjaro, Antergos or even Artix (there are quite a few more). Most of the time the derivatives have an installer and ready-made iso images with at least a basic graphical desktop setup.

Please check your facts before making these sort of inflammatory statements.

Arch has a different philosophy but you can always choose not to use it nor install things "the Arch way". You can disagree with them without such insults.

Keeping status quo for 30 years is retarded. "it's Arch, it's not for newbies" is their mantra.
What is it with some Linux distros, like Arch, Gentoo and some other "popular" ones? No installer? WTF is wrong with you? 30 years! no change. Retards!
Dang, don't I feel stupid. I mean, retarded. Arch is one of my favorite distros. :bagoverhead:

Just as an aside, Mr Carl Duff (who gave us the 'Architect' Arch installer, as well as the sadly short-lived 'Pacbang' distro) told me that in the beginning Arch Linux DID have an installer, and that although it worked fine it was abandoned in favour of the manual cli install.

polaca57 and I were some of the last holdouts with Manjaro OpenRC on their forums. I never did make the jump to Artix, but came here instead.

Right now I'm typing this from inside my own customized MX spin, running live, that I created with your snapshot tool in about twenty minutes this morning. I am so happy and so impressed with this community and what you've accomplished--what your work let me accomplish, today.

Thank you.
